VIA #6780 Disposition: Baltimore & Ohio #800

Western Maryland Scenic was home in the early 1990s to ex-VIA FPA4 #6780; it wore a paint scheme very similar to Baltimore & Ohio's classic blue/gray/black and carried 800 in the number boards. The locomotive was sold in 1996 to the North Central Railway in New Freedom, PA, where it pulled the Liberty Limited dinner train until 2001. Still wearing its B&O attire, the FPA4 was reunited not long afterwards with sister ex-VIA 6771 on the renamed Cuyahoga Valley Scenic at Penisula, OH. Frank Volkhardt photo (Ray Sabo collection)
